Want to vote June 5? Act fast: Voter registration closes at midnight

It’s not too late to join the 18,854,829 Californians registered to vote in next month’s primary election, but you have until midnight to do so.
According to state officials who held a news conference Monday, the fastest way to do so is to visit the official voter-registration site at registertovote.ca.gov .
If you’re already registered, you can go to  voterstatus.sos.ca.gov to check your status.
Just over 75 percent of eligible of Californians are registered, the highest percentage of eligible citizens before a gubernatorial primary in the past six decades.
As of last week, Contra Costa County had about 598,633 registered voters, Paul Burgarino said Monday.
“We’re probably going to eclipse 600,000 by the time last-minute voter registrations come in today,” said Burgarino, a community education and engagement specialist with the county’s clerk-recorder-elections department. “We urge those who are not only registering for the first time, but those who have moved or changed their names to check their status.”
In an isolated case in Santa Clara County , a registered voter found she had been unregistered to an employee error.
“There are lots of tools out there, but registering to vote is one small step,” Burgarino said. “We encourage people to become educated on all the issues so that they can be educated, informed voters when they turn out to vote on June 5.”
